Certified instructor description:
Salsa, merengue and cha cha — this high-energy program features Latin’s hottest moves and hottest music. Kathy’s superb cuing makes it effective and easy to follow; the pulsating music makes it motivating and fun. Filmed with a live band in LA’s famous Conga Room, it may feel more like a party than a workout. Kathy introduces each dance with the basics. Then, when you’re comfortable with the steps, she adds the variations — from pivots and kicks to direction and tempo changes (often using a voiceover to expertly guide you through the new move). Want to use these sultry steps on the dance floor? Great! The video ends with a short instructional segment on partner-dancing. Excellent production quality. ©1999.
